What is architecture in the age of the anthropocene, uncertainty and polarization? What agency do we have to address big issues through design? As WORKac enters the fourth of its five-year plans, Dan Wood will discuss the merits of pop, whimsey and optimism as the firm gets serious in in the scale and ambition of its work. Wood, co-founder and principal of WORKac in New York, is the recipient of this year’s UK College of Design Brown-Forman Visiting Chair Endowment. He will be working with Studio Louisville students on the continuation of the Portland neighborhood project in West Louisville. Wood was the 2013-14 Louis I. Kahn Chair at the Yale School of Architecture, and is currently an adjunct associate professor at Columbia GSAPP.
Friday, Nov. 9 from 7-9 p.m. at 21c Museum Hotel Louisville.
